We had a fantastic couple of nights here in August 2016. We stayed in the front room (No.3) which was a good size, with en-suite and a lovely balcony where we ate breakfast. The whole house is beautifully renovated and very clean. Tom was a great host and very helpful, with good local knowledge and tips. The town centre is... More

We stayed at the Front Rooms for our wedding anniversary and had such a lovely time. It was a peaceful place to be and we loved the decor. Breakfast was high quality - fruit, granola, juices and croissants and we had it served in our room which was such a treat having breakfast in bed. We spoke to Tom about... More

We stayed here at the weekend and really enjoyed the place. Rooms are smallish but immaculately clean and well prepared. Breakfast is of the continental type and is brought to your room. Tom the owner was courteous and helpful. Location great. Only minor issue is the lack of locks on doors. Obviously with only three rooms you would know the... More

Managed to somehow get a last minute bank hol reservation at the Front rooms last weekend. We were in the £120 per night room with a separate bathroom in the hallway (not a problem in the slightest). Decor was charming and had a real homely feel, with little touches like handmade ceramics in each room. The shower was amazing; great... More

We loved our stay here and can not wait to come back in summer. Great location and lovely decor. Our room was lovely and felt more like a hotel than a B&B. Whitstable is utterly charming. I would highly recommend visiting Jo Jo's in Tankerton for dinner! Tom is a great host and couldn't be more accommodating and welcoming. Thank... More

The Front Rooms is a wonderful place to stay. Lovely and quiet - only a couple of minutes walk to the beach and lots of bars and restaurants. The room was great and Tom is a fantastic host. Really enjoyed the breakfast too, which was delivered on a tray to our room. I'de have no hesitation in recommending this as... More

Generally a nice stay but the mattresses was uncomfortable (we could feel the springs) and no lock on the door. The owner accidentally came into our room and took a little too long to go back out and close the door... a bit awkward and weird why there was no lock! Also our room didn't have a bathroom so we...

The Front Rooms is the best B&B I’ve ever stayed in. From the moment you enter the spacious communal area downstairs, you know that you are not staying in the back room of Mr and Mrs Jones’ house and won’t bump into anyone whilst searching for the loo in the middle of the night….. in fact, you could be forgiven...

Host made us very welcome and provided exra heater for our room. Room with balcony but no view worth mentioning. Attractively decorated room but bed small at 4'6" with hollowfibre pillows.
